Opeth To Enter Studio Next Month
Swedish progressive metallers Opeth will enter Atlantis studios (formerly Metronome studios) in Stockholm on January 31, 2011 to begin recording their tenth album for a fall 2011 release via Roadrunner Records. Jens Bogren (Soilwork, Katatonia, Paradise Lost, Bloodbath) will engineer the effort while mixing duties will be handled by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree). The new material has been described by the band as "good." Opeth's last album, "Watershed" (2008), sold more than 19,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 23 on The Billboard 200 chart. Its predecessor, "Ghost Reveries", debuted at No. 64 on the Billboard chart back in September 2005 with first-week sales of just under 15,000. Opeth's 2003 album, "Damnation", opened with a little over 5,000 copies. As part of the ongoing celebration of their 20th anniversary, Opeth released live footage and audio from the band's performance at London's famed Royal Albert Hall. The concert (recorded on April 5, 2010) included two sets, the first consisting of the band performing 2000's now-classic, breakthrough epic "Blackwater Park" in its entirety, and the second, a chronologically arranged selection of material from the rest of OPETH's extensive catalogue, totaling almost three hours of music. "In Live Concert At The Royal Albert Hall" is, like the rest of Opeth's greatest work, "purposefully warped in all the right places" (Decibel). The front cover artwork concept pays tribute to Deep Purple's "Concerto for Group and Orchestra", underlining the band's longstanding love for their prog-rock roots. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.
